About

I'm Macguire — an experience designer, software developer, hackathon participant, and music producer. I'm currently completing a Bachelor of Science in Interactive Arts & Technology at Simon Fraser University. When I'm not studying or learning a new web framework, you can catch me DJing, making my own beats, or hiking the Swiss Alps with my mom.
